Abstract
This study explores the experiences of 7 Taiwanese people with physical disabilities in Taiwan. Three in-depth interviews with each participant were conducted. Participants identified experiences of community exclusion, despite disability legislation. We argue that their exclusionary experiences reflect embedded cultural attitudes and call for greater recognition of these influences to help foster inclusion of disabled people in Taiwan. Recommendations for researchers and policy-makers are provided.
